Belgian Amazon sellers without VAT registration risk having their accounts suspended.
Sellers in the TBA backend have reported receiving email notices requesting Belgian VAT compliance. According to Belgian Value Added Tax regulations, sellers will need to upload a valid VAT registration number on the seller platform by January 1, 2024, otherwise they risk having their accounts suspended.
Amazon is obligated by law to collect compliance proof and has the right to suspend non-compliant seller accounts. This action can impact a seller’s ability to sell products on Amazon.com.be and affect sales to Belgian buyers.
You must submit your Belgian VAT registration number on the Amazon Seller Central platform if:
• You are using Belgian warehouses (including Amazon)
• Your main address is in Belgium, and your annual sales exceed 25,000 euros
• Your main address is outside the EU, and you sell B2B to EU buyers
• Your main address is outside the EU, and you sell to Belgium from a non-EU country/region, with the value of the goods in a shipment exceeding 150 euros
• Your main address is in an EU country other than Belgium, and you sell B2C remotely to Belgian buyers
• Your main address is in an EU country other than Belgium, and your annual remote sales across all European channels exceed 10,000 euros.
If you already have a Belgian VAT registration number, you can submit it on the seller platform by following these steps:
- Go to the Account & Lists dropdown menu and select Your Account
- Under Account Settings, select VAT Information
- Under VAT Registration Numbers, click Add VAT Registration Number
- Select Belgium from the country list and enter your VAT registration number in the VAT Registration Number field
